ZombiU Escape From London trailer
Can’t get enough of the shambling undead? The Wii U has you covered with ZombiU…
Unless that massive rock sat on your head has drowned out the outside world, you’ll be more than aware that today saw the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and one of the highlights of Activision’s FPS is the zombie mode. In fact, Zombies and games just aren’t going to go away, and Nintendo is keen to jump on the rotting bandwagon too.
ZombiU from Ubisoft may have a distinctly Red Steel feel to it, as in it could be great, or a total failure, being a launch title and all, but there’s no denying that this motion controlled, second screen-utilising survival horror is looking mighty interesting.
The unique use of the Wii U’s controller, including the ability to use the screen as a viewer for mounted turrets, or as a sniper scope should add to the immersion somewhat, and the inventory management should banish those awkward Resident Evil menus of the past. It even looks the part, thanks to the Wii U’s improved horsepower.
The game looks to be a much more strategic outing that most similar titles and I for one am intrigued to see how well it plays when the Wii U arrives on November 18.
